Top 10 Nicest People of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Jesus Christ Jesus Christ Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4). more.

He helped me in a really hard time and kept me going when I felt alone. Wait, Britgirl you can't possibly be born a couple years after he died and still be alive! But he will always comfort you, even when you feel like he's left you in the dark. I also think Emma Watson is very nice.

Jesus kept me going when many of my closest friends left me behind. He was there for me throughout all that. He always has been there for me.

He once told me, "Do any sins you want. I'll forgive you."
So I punched him in the balls and stole his phone. Guess what? He forgave me! No wonder everyone loves him.
Who could ever be nicer than that? - SloppyFirsts

2 Mahatma Gandhi Mahatma Gandhi Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India.

Gandhi refused to give allow her wife to recieve modern medical treatment she was ill (opting only for spiritual healing instead). She died. Then when he got sick, he let doctors use the full extent of modern medicine on him. - marmalade_skies

One of the most legendary hypocrites in history and a friend of Hitler. I guess that puts him in the top 3 nicest people somehow? - SloppyFirsts

3 Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement.

He's a hero because now the dark skin people get to be with the light skin people, he save the world.

I like his speech

4 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.

Lincoln is given a much glossier image. Not the tyrant some revisionists want to name him, but he was practical in war time and brutal toward his enemies. - marmalade_skies

He led the country through the Civil War, and got rid of Slavery. No wander people think he's the greatest president of the United States.

You know nothing about the reasons and purposes behind the Civil War, and you certainly know nothing about Lincoln.Yours is the revisionist view.

He's not really nice anymore.

Before 2011, yeah. He was really nice and cared a lot about his fans, but to be honest, he seems pretty douchey now. - 3DG20
